The Flying Beaver Bar & Grill

Watch float planes land and take off at this unique bar & grill located on the north arm of the Fraser River, as you enjoy your Dine Out meal here!

Monkey 9 Brewpub

Richmond’s newest brewpub joins the Dine Out Vancouver with a menu developed by Chef Kevin Connaghan. The newly renovated, open concept kitchen with a woodstone pizza oven basically tells diners that they can’t miss the pizza. Start with the beet & goat feta salad, followed by their special spicy kimchi and pork belly pizza, and top it off with a homestyle carrot cake (or a boozy Irish coffee!).
